When it was least expected from them, Italy have shown a huge competitive spirit and strength against the reigning Olympic Games champions Brazil.

 

In the opener of a Day 2 in the 2017 FIVB Men’s Volleyball World Grand Champions Cup in Japan, the Italian National Team recovered from a demolition which they suffered in the first set to down Brazil in five, 3-2 (15-25, 27-25, 27-25, 18-25, 15-12).

The opposite Luca Vettori paved Italy’s way to victory with 27 points (4 kill blocks), making three points in a row in the tie-break at 9-10 which totally extinguished Brazil’s hopes of victory in Nagoya. In Brazil, Wallace de Souza notched 19 points (4 kill blocks).

Now, both the „Azzurri“ and Brazil have a 1-1 record but the South American side has one point more compared to the rivals (4 pts. – 3 pts.).

Day 2, fixtures:

Brazil vs. Italy 2-3 (25-15, 25-27, 25-27, 25-18, 12-15)

USA vs. Iran, 08:40 CET

Japan vs. France, 12:15 CET

She couldn't refuse such an offer, with such a trainer as Ze Roberto is lucky! Cool have a team at Hinode Barueri. Star on the star. Reply

Zaytsev to join Milano in the summer? Club president: “We must carefully evaluate the pros and cons”

Re: @dee jae69
Have you watch or seen the statistics of the final of Champions League?
Ivan Zaytsev with 14 pts 11 spikes(60% kill with only one fault)
Atanasijevic with only 9 pts 6 kills(32% 4 faults)

Conclusion:
Let's get rid of Zaytsev. Just funny. lol Reply

Zaytsev to join Milano in the summer? Club president: “We must carefully evaluate the pros and cons”

Re: @dee jae69 Check their wins. How many gold medals they have with Leon? How many gold medals they achieved without him? Zenit Kazan will be in bit trouble against the other heavyweights in Russia and Europe. With him on your side they dominated everyone besides Sada Cruzeiro until last year.
Anderson is getting old. He is very mediocre nowadays. He is not important to Zenit Kazan anymore. Only his serve is good. Mikhailov will soon be at his thirties. Poletaev may be good but he needs to prove himself in another club while Mikhailov still reigns supreme as Russia's best opposite.


Atanasijevic's contract will end this year. Same as Zaytsev. One of them will leave if Wilfredo Leon signs a contract with Perugia
Atanasijevic should leave. He chokes in crucial moments. I'd rather have Zaytsev who plays with all his heart, a more reliable player in the end game and a complete player with all the skills in the world a player could ask for. He is also a better team player.
